Green Pen Check
What is it?
All students are expected to check though their written work with a green pen. Encouraging students to focus on identifying and improving their literacy.
Punctuation, Accuracy, Grammar.
Clarity – How clear is your writing?
Does it make sense when you read it back?
Paragraphs – Show where they are meant
to be if you forgot to put them in.
Students who check through their own work are showing teachers the skills that will take them to a higher level.
For students to identify mistakes and make the appropriate corrections.
e.g. Spelling: butiful beautiful x 3
Sometimes it is hard to see your own mistakes and it may be easier to check your friend’s work and they can check yours.
You might be asked to check your partner’s answers.
When peer marking, use your green pen to do this.
Blue / Black – student.
Red – teacher.
Green pen – checking and redrafting.
Remember, Green Pen Checking is for ALL subjects!
